            About Green Island

            Green Island is a stunning, 6000-year-old coral cay – a small tropical island formed from ocean sediment being washed together by the currents over time. It also happens to be the only coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest sprouting from it, thanks to seeds and spores carried by water, birds and the wind. Just 45 minutes from Cairns, Green Island is the perfect destination for a daytrip. Its golden sands are fringed by reef – so close that you can snorkel off the beach directly, with an outer edge that's home to giant clams, stingrays, fish, turtles, starfish, sea anemones, sponges, sea urchins, eels and the occasional turtle.

            How far is it from Cairns?

            The whole circumference of Green Island is just 1.6 kilometres – but despite its tiny size, this surreal getaway is brimming with things to see and do. The kaleidoscopic reef and its unique inhabitants are obviously a major drawcard. Many tours (both half-day and full-day) give you the choice of either marvelling at the underwater ecosystem in a glass-bottom boat, or throwing on a mask and snorkel and fully immersing yourself in the natural beauty. Scuba diving is also possible, or you can even go old school and do a Seawalker experience in an underwater diving helmet! Outside of the water, enjoy stretching out and relaxing on the sandy shore, or watch the vegetation change from low scrub to dense vine-thicket rainforest on the Eco Island Walk.

            What can you see and do on Green Island?

            Green Island is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, which is largely considered the gem in the crowd that is the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. From the city of Cairns, it's just 15 nautical miles (or 27 kilometres) out to sea. Riding a speedy, air-conditioned catamaran, you can get there in just 45 minutes, or take the more intrepid path and breeze over aboard a sailboat (where you'll indulge in a scrumptious smorgasbord lunch). There are ferries that leave from Cairns, or you can choose to embark on a half or full-day guided tour.

            How much does it cost to get to Green Island?

            Depending on your budget and what you'd like to get out of your tropical experience, there are several options when it comes to getting to Green Island. The easiest on the wallet is to just get a return ferry, which still gives you access to island day facilities: you can cool off in the swimming pool or mosey off on a self-guided eco island walk. Half-day trips and full-day trips via a catamaran are great value for money, with the latter giving you seven hours of play time on the island. If you're feeling spirited and indulgent, upgrade your transport to a magnificent sailboat, or you can combine your Green Island adventure with a tour of other parts of the reef.

            Which is better – Fitzroy Island or Green Island?

            When it comes to the question of which destination is better – Green Island or Fitzroy Island – the real answer is both, but if you can only get to one, you should choose based on your needs and desires. A trip to Green Island is perfect for those who enjoy a bit of a buzz: the island has more shops, restaurants and bars than Fitzroy Island, and because it's so small, everything is close. This also makes it super accessible – all Green Island's luscious beaches are easy to get to. If you're keen to stay overnight, Green Island's accommodation options are lush, whereas Fitzroy Island offers both luxe and more rugged options – you can even camp overnight! Both islands are roughly the same distance from Cairns and both have multiple operators running day trips to them.
